The NFL playoff picture is set and the U.S. won the World Junior Championship in hockey -- what else do you need?

This week also brought us the annual NHL Winter Classic, held this time in Chicago. In other wintry news, stunning images came out of the Four Hills skiing tournament in Europe.

We also followed along with the action from the NBA, College Football Bowl Games and even a little bit of cricket.

Check out the slideshow above for photos from all of these events and more, and be sure to check back next weekend for the best shots from the week in sports.
